Praise the Lord for providing a Meeting Place
Contract for 1 year beginning April 2nd
After many months of looking for a meeting place the Lord led us to visit an old Masonic Temple that is currently not being used. Owned by a Senior Living center, we approached the director with the possibility of using their facility for First State Baptist Church. They were very excited about being able to rent the facility. The staff was very welcoming, and we were introduced to many of the residents in the 55+ community. It was blessing to meet a former member of Capitol Baptist Church at the center. She was excited to be able to attend church again! Brother Jack Wagner, a faithful Christian, was a big help to us to find this meeting place. We will be signing a 1 year contract with the Weston Senior Living Center. The facility includes an 1,800 square foot auditorium, bathrooms, a full kitchen, and 4 classrooms for Sunday school. We will be able to have it for $800 a month for the first 6 months, and then $1,000 a month for the next 6 months. Thank you for all those that have prayed, the Lord answered your prayer!
Beginning Sunday afternoon services
Lord willing we will be starting Sunday afternoon services in December. Since we have had much fruit during our door to door visitation, we believe it would be a good time start holding services in Wilmington. We are praying for 5 families to be part of First State Baptist Church as charter members when we officially begin on April 2, 2017.
